omega hux starts nesting before having their first litter. alpha kylo thinks it's cute and helps him.
“This is absolutely ridiculous,” Hux announces loudly, arms full of pillows, a blanket draped around his shoulders. “I haven’t time for this nonsense.”
He kneels down in the corner of his and Kylo’s living chamber, beginning to arrange the new pillows amongst the ones already there, making sure that they provide a soft cushioning from the hard floor. Pulling the blanket off from around his shoulders, Hux spreads it out across the pillows, giving him one big and soft mattress-esque arrangement underneath a sheet suspended from the ceiling.
Kylo, very quietly, sits on the couch, watching his mate make various trips from their bedroom back to his nest, carrying books and blankets and his clothing over to his den. The alpha can’t help but smile, eyes drifting down to the small bulge of Hux’s belly, the perfectly soft curve where their pup is growing.
“It looks good, Hux,” Kylo comments.
“Shut up, Ren. You know nothing about nesting.”
“You’re missing food. It needs snacks hidden inside it.”
Hux huffs, trudging to their cupboards to pull out packets of biscuits and dried fruits; two of Hux’s biggest cravings.
“Thank you, Kylo,” Hux says underneath his breath.
While Batman was being hit by Darkseid’s Omega beams he looked at every person as a conceptual being. He looked at Clark and saw protection. With Diana he saw a perfect balance of War and Peace. In Hal he saw bravery. In Barry he saw hope.
In the 1990s cartoon Superman: The
Animated Series, Dan Turpin was modelled on Jack Kirby and voiced by Joseph
Bologna. He appears often in the early part of the series. At first highly
critical of Superman, he becomes more appreciative of him after he and Superman
save each other’s lives from Intergang. Turpin eventually stands up to and is
killed by the alien tyrant Darkseid using his Omega Beams, in the latter half
of the two-part episode «Apokolips … Now!», just before Darkseid
leaves Earth. The character’s funeral was presided over by a rabbi who recited
a kaddish. Out of respect for the legacy of Kirby, the character’s creator, producer
Bruce Timm found a genuine religious leader for the voiceover, the cantor of a
large Conservative temple in LA. He also modeled the cemetery after the
real-life one where Jack Kirby is buried. Among the attendees of the fictional
funeral in the original TV airing were some of Kirby’s Marvel comics creations,
such as the Fantastic Four and Nick Fury, as well as the likeness of Kirby’s
frequent collaborator Stan Lee (these were edited from the DVD release to avoid
infringement issues with Marvel). Superman watches the funeral at a distance
and delivers the words «In the end, the world didn’t need a Superman…just a
brave one». The episode ends with a dedication to Kirby with the afterword «Long
Live the King».
Hey, you seem to be a batperson. Do you like Tim Drake? I am un-intruiged by him, but looking to be converted. If you like the character, tell me why? (or where? :P)
“you seem to be a batperson” what a wonderful thing to say to me i love it i LOVE IT
so, tim… tim is a character often perceived as the blandest batkid out of the family and it seems people sometimes think of him as the least worked on, least important robin in the batman universe, a boy that if the writers forgot to include in the batman mythos altogether, nobody would notice or care. give me a minute to explain why they’re, to put it kindly, very very wrong
what i’ve always found fascinating about tim drake is the fact that, unlike the other robins, he didn’t get into this because of personal reasons. no vengeance, hatred, or some disorted view of justice rooting from tragedy was involved. his past didn’t predefine his future. dick grayson saw his parents die in front of him and is often perceived as batman’s greatest triumph, while jason todd (post-crisis because otherwise we’re just talking about dick #2) had a rough, tragedy-filled childhood and, because he never managed to overcome his anger at the world even after bruce brought him in, he ultimately died and was then dubbed “batman’s greatest failure”. stephanie, despite her short tenure, tried her best to prove her worth, to make it known that she was capable enough to play a role in batman and co’s life, however big or small, and then we have damian, batman’s biological son, who more or less had the same attitude as steph only that he was 10x times more spoiled and a lot, a lot more threatening (i imagine that happens when assassins bring you up). all of them have defining backstories that could easily support their own titles without batman’s shadow helping them be interesting, but tim? no, tim’s different. tim, at the beginning, is normal
timothy jackson drake-wayne can argueably be considered one of the most well-adjusted, well-off characters in batman comics at the time of his introduction. he was privileged enough to be able to afford housing close to the wayne manor while both of his (affectionate) parents were alive. tim was as close as any of us can relate to the robins: a batman fan. simple as that. that’s what drove him. that (and his general stubborness) is what allowed him to succesfully convince batman he needs a robin. he knew what had happened to jason and he decided, upon seeing batman wasn’t planning on having another partner, to heal him. now, here’s the thing: tim saved bruce. i can’t stress this enough. bruce, at the time, was incredibly depressed and had an even-more-than-usual destructive behaviour that could, at the very least, be described as alarming. if we leave the comic realm for a bit and pretend batman’s world is real, i sincerely don’t know how bruce would have ended up if not for tim’s intervention. probably would’ve burned out to the point of no return. tim showed him that batman will always need robin, no matter what. and then he showed him he could be just that by taking his place next to him and reintroducing him to the great world of the dynamic duo (and did a damn good job, let me tell you)
naturally, because this is dc and especially batman comics (so everything’s dark and a bird can’t take a shit on a lovely monday morning without a hawk diving in and ripping it to shreds), tim did eventually go through tragedy. he lost his dad to captain boomerang, his relationship with stephanie got turbulent at best (plus she “died”) and a bunch of other stuff that, however, didn’t stop him from being a damn good hero. i want to note here that tim also saved bruce a second time following final crisis, after darkseid shot batman with his flowery pink omega beams and propelled him to the dawn of time. when everyone, both the family and the justice league thought bruce was dead, tim never gave up (actually, not only did he not give up, he never even thought that bruce being really dead was a possible outcome. you could see dick in the background stressing over donning the cowl or not and tim was like “yah cool bruce’ll be back”). when he was eventually returned, tim was there to calm him down before bruce went all defcon 1 and did some destructive mojo timespace… things…. we won’t get into because final crisis’ aftermath distresses me
you see, just how damian wayne is robin and partner to dick grayson’s batman (let’s all please agree that the dynamics between bruce and damian as batman and robin before the new 52 were the very definition of bad family communication and i’m being modest here), tim drake is bruce wayne’s partner. that’s how i’ve always viewed it. this is not to say that the rest of the kids haven’t been great robins in their own ways, but except for the b&r team-up of bruce and damian after the reboot, tim was the one robin that seemed to work in perfect, nearly calculated harmony with bruce’s batman. and even though i loved dad and son doing their thing in the new 52, i still find tim’s robin to give me an “original” feeling to what batman and robin’s concept is like
so this is why i think tim’s a great noodle. the reason, at the same time, i can see why some people might find him uninteresting. people can have their preferences, nothing wrong with that, but i do believe he deserves to be given a shot. in case you want to give him it, here’s a reading list. the kid’s (eternally…………………………………..) 16 or 17 and can build his own damn batcomputer, we owe him at least that
Description: Dan is an omega; he was born into suffrage with an omega mother and beta sister too young for work. Dan’s family often found themselves with pennies and dollars to get by on.That, of course, is until Dan makes the decision to sell himself to an Alpha sex ring.

A/N: Summer’s going well, I forgot what day it was until Monday rolled around. In other news tomorrow my entire family is heading off on a camping trip R.I.P me. So I may finish the prompt on Sunday lil anon >-< (F*Ck I thought it was Wednesday, apparently it’s Thursday. I need to reevaluate my mental calendar.)
There was a loud siren going off inside REVOCS. Soldiers were running in looking panicked. A loud roar could be heard from outside. "Lady Kiryuin! There's...There's a Dragon on the building!" One yelled, seeming like he didn't believe it himself..
“I just got back and already there is a dragon outside my building.” Ragyo growled, clearly having a broken arm that is on a slung did she raise herself up and towards the soldiers. Despite her temporary disability, the men would question why can she not recover like she always. The only answer would involve the constant application of Omega Beams and the anti life equation. Something even she was forced to retreat with her vanguard. Her secret war against the DC universe did not go as planned.
However this, this did not amuse her in the least. Motioning her soldiers to lead on did she follow with her men.
Are there different kinds of ways to create fusion?
I’m glad you asked! Right now, there are two major experimental approaches for fusion being studied: magnetic confinement and inertial confinement.
In magnetic confinement fusion, the electrical conductivity of deuterium-tritium plasma is used to contain it within magnetic fields at a high pressure and heated to fusion temperature. Because the particles need to be repelled from the walls of a reactor (otherwise contact will dissipate their heat and slow them down), the most effective magnetic configuration is toroidal wherein the magnetic field is curved around and forms a closed loop. There are several different types of toroidal confinement systems but the most important are tokamaks and stellarators (reversed-field pinch devices would be next; however, plasma confinement in the best RFP is only about 1% as good as in the best tokamaks, owing largely to the fact that existing RFPs are very small).
In inertial confinement fusion, which is a newer line of fusion research, laser or ion beams are focused extremely precisely on a target - a pellet of deuterium-tritium fuel only a few millimeters in diameter. When the outer layer of the material is heated, it creates an outward explosion that generates an implosion that in turn compresses and heats the inner layers of material and results in conditions in which fusion can occur. The core of the fuel may be compressed to 1,000 times its liquid density and the energy released heats the surrounding fuel that may also undergo fusion, leading to a chain reaction (this is referred to as ignition) as the reaction spreads outward through the fuel.
Large scale attempts at inertial confinement fusion include the Shiva laser built by Lawrence Livermore National Lab, followed by the Nova laser, the 24 beam OMEGA laser and the Novette Laser, which all paved the way for the National Ignition Facility in Livermore, California.
